Is your bath as safe as it could be?

By January 8, 2016News

During National Bath Safety Month, Worly is taking a look at ways to make your bathroom safe.  From simple tips to easy-to-install safety features, we have several suggestions for homeowners.

Experts recommend installing several simple items in your bath to minimize the risk of falls and other common bathroom injuries.

  • Stay on your feet: Add a skid-proof mat or apply adhesive non-skid strips to the floor of your tub or shower to minimize slipping on wet surfaces.  Keep a cushy bath mat just outside your tub or show to keep the bathroom floor from becoming a hazard when wet.
  • Hold On: Install a sturdy grab bar in your shower or bath.  Many manufacturers have beautiful accessories available so there is no need to sacrifice style for safety.
  • Check the Temperature: Consider adding faucet fixtures with digital temperature controls to eliminate the risk of scald injuries.  Delta, Moen, Hansgrohe, and Grohe offer a variety of bath fixtures with built-in safety features such as child safety locks, color indicators for temperature, and easy-to-read digital thermostat displays.

Bath safety is for everyone, not just young children or the elderly.  Make an appointment with one of our showroom experts to find out how to incorporate features into your bathroom to make it safer for both your family and your guests.
